We are an local charity providing a volunteer befriending service for socially isolated children, young people and adults with learning disabilities across the Scottish Borders. We create and support 1:1 friendships and social groups which improve members’ happiness, confidence, self-esteem and social skills and provide short breaks for their carers. We are open to anyone aged over 8 with learning disabilities, including  children and young people with complex needs or autism.  Our service is free apart from small contributions to activity and travel costs. Our volunteers are young & old and drawn from all walks of life, and we are always looking for new befrienders. If you (or someone you care for or know) would like to use the service or volunteer, please use the links above to explore the site, and we look forward to hearing from you.
